Watkins’s film program is distinguished by a film curriculum that explores the artistic, technical, and business aspects of independent filmmaking. With a focus on dramatic narrative film, the department helps students find their personal voice and style in order to incorporate these elements into their narrative work. All film students take film courses their first year of study and begin production within their second year. Production courses are small, allowing for faculty mentoring and advising and close collaboration with colleagues. For more information, please visit: https://www.watkins.edu/academics/film/.
